Labor Days DVD Release Showcase

By Ari Kane

The stars of the award-winning web series “Labor Days” performed in a special comedy showcase celebrating the “Labor Days – Season One” DVD release.  “Labor Days” features some of South Florida’s funniest comedians and we saw them live at the Miami Improv for a special ONE NIGHT ONLY comedy showcase! We will highlight some of our favorite performers.

Lisa Corrao joked about how she recently moved back in to her parents house and now envies the homeless for their dignity. She also compared her vagina to a boat because some people are only friends with her because she has one and it requires thousands of dollars of maintenance and is only used like once a month.

Kirk Meadows who sounds like Mike Tyson’s adorable gay cousin, killed it too. He joked about how he calls his daughter “Misty” because she was a mistake and his daughter calls him “Pop” because that is what happened to the condom. He also joked about how McDonald’s gives their employees one premium parking spot to share but, on a McDonald’s salary, nobody can afford a car.

Lando Leyba was also superb telling a hilarious story about being pulled over by a bicycle cop and was afraid that if he got arrested he would have to ride the handle bars into the station. He also discussed how he got a BJ coupon from his wife for his birthday and how some fools wait, but he cashed that shit in right away.

Our friend, Forrest Shaw was poignantly funny (as usual) discussing how it would be great if the TV shows “Intervention” and “Hoarders” were combined so a crack head would move into a hoarder’s place and clean that travesty of a mess out in a couple weeks. Lets put our resourceful Crackheads to good use.

The show was a riotous laugh and we can’t wait to see all of these guys (and Lisa) again. Good Luck in La-La-Land Forrest.  Just remember, no matter what the casting guy tells you, you do not have to toss salad to land a gig.

About Labor Days

labor-daysLabor Days is a comedy series that follows the misadventures of the worst day labor crew in town.  In a stroke of monumental bad luck (usually reserved for tv shows), John loses his job, his fiancee’, and his car.  Depressed and desperate for money, he decides to join a day labor crew.

Labor Days recently screened at the Independent Film Quarterly film festival in Los Angeles and was also accepted into the 2013 Hollyweb Festival.
